7 g of fat
- 175g Quorn Mince
- 5 medium carrots sliced and cooked until soft then drained
- 1 level tsp yeast extract
- 50g fresh white bread crumbs, 2 slices approx
- 6 dried apricots, finely chopped
- 50g sultanas, finely chopped
- 4 spring onions, finely sliced including green part
- 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
- 1 orange, zest only, finely grated
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
- 1 medium egg, beaten
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil for frying (Quorn just needs to be added to the sauce, so the recipe requires about 50% less oil than you would usually use)
- a little flour to dust burgers
- Mash the carrots whilst still warm, stir through the yeast extract so that it melts
- Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well
- Form burgers either with your hands or use a suitable sized pastry cutter as a mould.
- Pack the mixture firmly into the mould and then remove carefully. This mixture makes 10-12 burgers depending on size
- Dust the burgers lightly with flour, shallow fry in preheated oil for 10-12 minutes on a medium heat, turning halfway for even browning
- Drain on kitchen paper. Serve in a bun with crispy lettuce leaves
Serve on a wholemeal roll with dark green leafy veggies like spinach or kale, with a couple of slices of salad tomatoes!
